Microsoft reaches out to former Apple MobileMe users, offers 1 year of extra 15 GB for SkyDrive

While we don’t suspect many of you are users of the former cloud-service from Apple called MobileMe, which was cancelled last year and merged into iCloud, we suppose it couldn’t hurt to mention this offer.

Last year, Apple abandoned MobileMe, which had trouble from day one. Those users though did have 20GB of free online storage while Apple’s new iCloud only offered 5GB. Apple did however make up the 15GB difference for one year to those switching over, but alas, that one year ended within the last few days (though some have extensions until September 30th). As a result, Apple sent out “downgrade” notices to people notifying them that they are losing that 15GB. Users can either accept that or pay to keep the extra 15GB.

AT&T‘s new Windows Phone 8 offer gives incentive to buy two for one

It looks like AT&T want to really put some Windows Phones in customers hands as a new offer evidently has gone live.  We just got word that AT&T is offering a new deal to help push Windows Phone 8 devices starting…well yesterday and going through February 21st (the same date as the free wireless charger offer).

The new deal is simple: buy one Windows Phone 8 device and get $100 off of the same type of Windows Phone e.g. if you buy a Lumia 920, you can get $100 off of a second Lumia 920. Likewise if you buy an HTC 8X you can get the discount for $100 off of a second 8x.

Of course there are the usual qualifiers but still, that’s a good incentive to push some Windows Phones out the door for at least a few weeks.  No word if this will be offered online or only in-store. Check out the full details from an internal AT&T email after the break...

Phonos has been around for a while and we have reviewed it previously, it is now on a promotion offer until the end of the year.

Lumia 920 on AT&T price drop to $49.99

From this Friday AT&T will be offering the Lumia 920 at any of its company owned retail stores for $49.99. Of course you’ll need to sign a contract for two years with voice and data, but at least the carrier will be matching both Amazon and Walmart.

Carphone Warehouse UK offering free Windows 8 Pro upgrade when buying a Lumia 820

In one of the more creative offerings we have seen to get people to buy new Windows Phone 8 handsets, we like this one from Carphone Warehouse.  By simply purchasing a Nokia Lumia 820 you qualify for a free upgrade to Windows 8 Pro on your PC. (Unfortunately, Phones4U have an exclusive on the 920).That reinforces the notion that Microsoft (and their partners) are really pushing the idea that the desktop OS and phone are companions.

Fans of Microsoft's mobile OS for years have clamored for such a marketing campaign and now it looks to finally be happening. Thanks, Louis B, for the photo!


Has AT&T already run out of free wireless charging plates? No, they have not.

Just after midnight last night AT&T finally starting taking pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 for this Friday’s release. Included with the Lumia 920 is of course one free wireless charging plate—a $49 value.

We had reports coming in all day though that customers were not getting the free pad offer upon checkout. In fact, there was often no mention of it during the whole pre-order process. Some in our viewership called AT&T and were told by customer-service reps (CSR) that in fact AT&T has “run out” of said plates, effectively making the offer over just mere hours after it had begun.
